least you have to say, we are saying that UP Government did not inform,
they informed only after 28/2. Subsequently…on record it is not
It’s not my duty, I have to comment upon from 9th onwards. Complication
is already there. Central IB also did not give the information.
They will ask about pre-Godhra and after Godhra, you have to clearly answer
that. You are not concerned with pre-Godhra and afterwards also based
all records. This is not from the record that now come to your question
on 24th April 2002 report. Few questions, i.e. on 8 to 10 points in the
report. They are mostly like advisory kind of thing.
information you collected from the public.
From public and multifarious sources.
this, you have no authorisation to get it checked.
will ask you, on points in 24/4 report that what and how you came to know
this. Another thing is that they are not doing investigation. That is
not your look out. They will try to put in your mouth that police officers
did not investigate properly. If you report that the question of which
police station, which officer, entire state, etc will come up. They will
bring out this for making it a story. That very carefully you have to
will be the basis of their report.
of IB department is all always getting, collecting information from their
sources… analysis it and report to the State, that is part of duty.
I am telling you, after sending an information what happened?
us say, a message is sent to government, whether the government would
act on it?
will ask different questions as to whether any action has been taken by
the government or police. Have you any idea?
I have no idea.
you can say that it is my job to report. That is not question. What happened
afterwards? You can say that they are not supposed to inform you about
action taken by them. My duty is to alert, the government is to take appropriate
action on verification of facts and figures.
Whenever source is available it is checked back and their confirmation
report is sent and home department is informed.
will be asked what further action you have taken?
I am not sure about the execution. Whenever information is received we
may check up with the Central IB also.
have no measurement as to how much of the information is correct or not?
they will ask, all right, you have informed the government, but afterwards
have you seen any situation? Up to 26th it’s all right but after
26th if there is no action, the question will come up on the government
i.e. for explaining the position that after Sreekumar’s report also
nothing is done by the government.
question will come after 26th report if there is no follow-up action,
does it mean that policemen were not working?
Yes, this has to be seen.
Since the matter pertains to my predecessor’s period I cannot answer,
as I don’t carry secret reports of State IB after my transfer.
